“We are convinced that the most important information for high school graduates is the list of 71 most popular majors. Candidates increasingly use the Multi-criteria Ranking of Majors as a basis for their decision on choosing a specific program in a specific university.
“And now, in the peak of the recruitment season, it is time for precisely that!”
